Gold leaf boys Part I consists of a renewed version of 'Triptych with the artist at a very young age' (was shown in 1988 in Drost's exhibition 'nous venons tous du paradis, nous allons tous au paradis' at Galerie Van den Crommenacker in Arnhem), the collection of ink drawings 'life a playground' (2012-2017) and a boy statue with fruit bowl (2022).
'Triptych with the artist at a very young age' was originally a work for the wall. Here, however, it is an independent image that occupies its space. Drost has added a headpiece with clock, modified the back into a visible side and in front of it he places a pedestal with a miniature version of the antique spinario, the thorn extractor. Gold shiny.
